  Reproductive interference across continental scales: combining citizen science and behavioural experiments to test reproductive character displacement hypotheses
  Dr J Drury
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Social interactions between species impact numerous ecological and evolutionary processes. For instance, wasteful reproductive interactions between species (reproductive interference) may prevent two species from coexisting in the same location unless natural selection drives divergence in traits used as mating signals.
  The impact of mutualistic dependence on the evolution of interaction-related genes: a case study in the largest ant/plant symbiotic system
  Dr G Chomicki
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

We are seeking a highly motivated PhD student to join this exciting project on the genomics of mutualism dependence using ant/plant symbioses as model systems.
  The global drivers of shifts in mutualistic dependence
  Dr G Chomicki
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

We are seeking a highly motivated PhD student to join this exciting project on the macroevolution of mutualisms. Students with background including computer science, applied mathematics and environmental science are encouraged to apply in addition to those from pure biological sciences.
  Behavioural and physiological responses to changing environments in wild grey seals (Halichoerus grypus)
  Dr S D Twiss
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Organisms have evolved mechanisms to cope with natural stressors, but rapid environmental change is subjecting species to new threats or more unpredictable and extreme natural stressors.
  Using citizen science and landscape genomics to understand how interactions between species impact range expansion
  Dr J Drury, Dr A.C Brennan
Application Deadline: 11 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

As species’ ranges shift in response to human-induced global changes they are likely to come into contact and compete with species that they had not encountered previously.
  Is the Arctic an engine of phenotypic and cultural diversity?
  Dr J Drury, Dr S Street
Application Deadline: 11 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The latitudinal diversity gradient, a pattern of high species richness in tropical regions relative to temperate regions, is one of the most striking patterns of present-day biodiversity.
  The eyes have it: fetal reactions to visual stimulation
  Dr N Reissland
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The womb is not entirely dark and hence fetuses can perceive light. It is not clear what fetuses might be able to perceive and in what detail they might be able to “see” which has implications for cognitive development.
